Much newer manufacturing process 32 nm vs 130 nm A newer manufacturing process allows for a more powerful, yet cooler running processor
Much more l2 cache 4 MB vs 0.25 MB 16x more l2 cache; more data can be stored in the l2 cache for quick access later
Much higher clock speed 2.9 GHz vs 1.4 GHz More than 2x higher clock speed
Has a NX bit Yes vs No Somewhat common; Prevents a common class of security exploits
Much more l2 cache per core 1 MB/core vs 0.25 MB/core 4x more l2 cache per core
Much better overclocked clock speed (Air) 3.54 GHz vs 1.92 GHz Around 85% better overclocked clock speed (Air)
Newer Jun, 2011 vs May, 2004 Release date over 7 years later
More cores 4 vs 1 3 more cores; run more applications at once
Better PassMark score 3,489 vs 291 Around 12x better PassMark score
More threads 4 vs 1 3 more threads
Much better overclocked clock speed (Water) 2.9 GHz vs 1.4 GHz More than 2x better overclocked clock speed (Water)
Better performance per watt 1.39 pt/W vs 0.48 pt/W Around 3x better performance per watt
